And here with this guy, we have the sort of Bernie fans that are no better than Right-Wing concern trolls. The kind of person who we need a lot less of in democratic systems. Cult of Personalities are cancer to democracy, and whether this brand of cancer favours a right-winger or a left-winger, all cancer is toxic to the system and has through history proven to be destructive in its ends to the progressive movement as a whole.
oh boy.... First of all Warren is a snake, I'll just start with that and all you have to do is look at her record vs her rhetoric. On top of that she's being propped up by the media.
It's posts like this that make Bernie's cult of personality indistinguishable from Republican concern trolls. The reality is Elizabeth Warren's record is that of a progressive which includes: Warren's updated Glass-Steagall bill, crushing corrupt Wall Street execs, and the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. If the media is a fan of that, then good for her and the progressive movement: unfortunate for you and the conservative movement or Bernie Bro movement, to whichever one you belong.
If it's the Bernie Bro movement, the irony is Bernie Sanders is also a fan of Elizabeth Warren
Polls aren't very accurate either as they don't account for the boots on the ground. They oversample old folks and undersample young voters. Here are some small truths
Biden is over represented in the Polls. He's probably the front runner, but also he's probably tied with Bernie.
Bernie is under represented in the Polls. Young people don't get polled he's by far the most popular with them, he's above the rest besides Biden.
Tulsi and Yang are also Under represented. Don't be fooled, they get crowds and they have an overlap niche with young people. Especially Tulsi since she also has the election integrity vote. The vote that bernie is losing by not calling out the corruption.
Beautiful conspiracy theory, one so far from reality that you couldn't find any evidence to support it, and as such, we can dismiss it without evidence. As far as polls, where's your proof on this? If anything, it's the other way around since older people tend to be the ones more likely to vote.
Also, when you considered Yang being under-represented, I was with you since he is rising in the polls, and his support will inevitably be more significant in the end: but Tulsi Gabbard, now I know you're full of crap - she's OK, but hardly remarkable among the candidates available in terms of progressivism.
I should probably stop here since you're clearly trolling, but I'll go on.
If all of what you're saying is true, then why are you so frightened that you have to post a whole lot of fanboy/concern-trolling bullshit?
Also, where is your evidence?
Warren's rise is pretty easy to explain you just have to look back at Kamala. She's the current and probably the last media darling. She's the establishment's pick whether you want to hear it or not, she is. She's getting the media boost which is also a good amount of the people who are being polled. Most of them watch corporate media and they see her and she seems to be doing well so they think about going to her. She's also picking up the anti-sanders Hillary crowd, I'd prefer to describe them in another way but I don't feel like getting banned. point is her polls are most likely inflated as well.
You just made that up. First of all, we see that the top #2 pick for Elizabeth Warren supporters is Bernie Sanders. It's not like you didn't know this since it's in this thread — the exact opposite of what you claim.
You want an actual good metric of how well candidates are doing?
Individual donors and Volunteers on the ground.
Bernie has 1 Million Volunteers and the most individual donors. These are essentially votes.
Warren is 2nd though she's done that by stealing bernie's ideas and passing them off as her own. And then she waters them down to the point where they aren't worth it.
"Stealing Bernie's ideas."
Are you for real? Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren both belong to the progressive movement.
Progressivism is NOT something that was invented by Bernie Sanders. It dates back to at least the 18th century (17th if you include the English Civil War and Restoration England as part of the current day movement in the Anglo-sphere alone - which did have a profound effect on the rest of Western Civilization). The majority of the foundation and policy directions established through the 19th and early 20th century.
It sounds to me that you have been eating a lot of horse shit.
Let me say this one more time. All of Warren's "plans" (except green bombs cause lol, she's a warmonger) are stolen from bernie and have bills written by Bernie himself that she never cosponsored. She's using his talking points, his ideas and then I hear people saying she's more progressive.... like LOL NO. She's 100% fraud and you want to know why?
She takes big Money. She bundled 10mil from her senate re-election from big donors and is using that to run "grassroots" in the Primary. Then in the general back to that big money. She said it herself. Check open secrets. Look at her record. Look at her donors. She's not your friend, She's Not Progressive but she most definitely, is 100% Neoliberal.
You call her a warmonger; but if that is true, she's a poor one considering she hasn't declared a single war except for the one against corruption on Wall Street - which I fully support.
What bills did she steal from Bernie? You haven't provided any examples.
She is using the leftover money to continue her campaign. That is entirely ordinary for all types of political campaigns, including parties with strict grassroots principles. Are you suggesting that Bernie has refunded money from past campaigns? Provide evidence for this. I am not taking your word for it.
Also, she's a social democrat, not a neoliberal. Learn the difference, kid.
Now the question is what you are and why you posted such a horseshit and conspiracy theory filled rant. Are you a neoconservative concern-troll or the kind of Bernie-Bro/Bernie-Boy (who, ironically, isn't actually in favour of the same things Bernie is in support of - such as Elizabeth Warren's success)?
Learn something about the progressive movement and its history. No matter what you right-wingers/Bernie Bros may think, this isn't something that Bernie Sanders invented five years ago; this is a movement that has been going on for centuries. You may claim to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders, but (whether by choice or through ignorance) you are no friend to the values of the progressive movement to which he dedicates himself.
